About

Close to Paignton is the long, sandy stretch of Goodrington Sands. With a Seaside Award, safe swimming conditions and loads of great activities, this family friendly beach promises to keep the kids happy whatever the weather.

So what can you do at Goodrington Sands? The first thing that springs to mind is watersports! This a great place to swim, and there are a number of different hire options available, with pedalos, paddle boats and even windsurfing for beginners.

If you’re planning to explore the rock pools at low tide, don’t forget to visit the Seashore Centre first. Here you can learn more about the English Riviera’s sea-life and Geopark through interactive displays. After arming yourself with information, you’ll know precisely what you’ve found lurking under the seaweed!
